Dylan Thomas: new critical essays by Walford Davies( Book )
90 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,024 libraries worldwide
"Covering the whole range of Dylan Thomas's writing, both poetry and prose, this is an accessible appraisal of the work and achievement of a major and dynamic poet. It interrelates the man and his national-cultural background by defining in detail the Welshness of his poetic temperament and critical attitudes, as both man and poet. It also illustrates Thomas's wide knowledge of and impact on the long and varied tradition of poetry in English. In that connection, the study delineates and delimits Thomas's relationship to Surrealism, compares and contrasts his work with that of other poets of the 1930s and 1940s, and shows how its power today survives his death at an early age in 1953. A main aspect of the book is its close textual analyses, separating the achievement of the work from the 'legend'.--Cover

Under milk wood, a play for voices by Dylan Thomas( Book )
33 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in English and Welsh and held by 291 libraries worldwide
In 1951, two years before his death, Dylan Thomas wrote of his plan to complete a radio play, 'an impression for voices, an entertainment out of the darkness, of the town I live in, and to write it simply and warmly and comically with lots of movement and varieties of moods, so that, at many levels ... you come to know the town as an inhabitant of it'. The work was 'Under Milk Wood' - an orchestration of voices, sights and sounds that conjure up the dreams and waking hours of an imagined Welsh seaside village within the cycle of one day. Includes an introduction, notes, selected criticism and chronology of Thomas's life and times

This gathering of all Dylan Thomas's stories, ranging chronologically from the dark, almost surrealistic tales of Thomas's youth to such gloriously rumbustious celebrations of life as A Child's Christmas in Wales and Adventures in the Skin Trade, charts the progress toward his mastery of the comic idiom.
